Now, they are much more visually appealing, because the images and text are larger. This also means the words are much easier to see in all 3 languages.

Although my first child didn’t use these much, they have been helpful for my 3-year-old who is learning geography basics. I hope they can be useful your family, too!

1. Purpose of Montessori 3-part cards

Each set of continent cards consist of 3 parts that are displayed in a divided stand, tray, or folder:

  1. Continent picture
  2. Label (the continent’s name)
  3. Control card with picture and label together

Since the concept of continents are pretty abstract for a young child, we first focused on picture matching and recognizing the Montessori colors of teach continent. He also enjoyed coloring our continent printables!

Gradually, my son began to remember the continent names and recognize the Chinese characters, so he was ready to try matching the continent names.

2. Significance of Montessori continent colors

As with all Montessori learning materials, the continents follow consistent colors.
